On 9 March 2017, some local residents found a man in a house in Energetikov Street in the town of Troitsk without any signs of life. An ambulance crew arrived and determined that the man was drunk and provided him with necessary medial aid. The patient came round and hit a paramedic and an attendant several times. He then fled but was detained by police.
